“Great place to be located in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Areos while we where in Athens. It's a great place to situated in Athens, looking at cost, location, rooms (design & space), breakfast etc. the hotel is really clean and hat a coffeebar + lounge on the ground floor where they serve great coffee, softdrinks and some small meals (not for diner). The rooms are spacious, clean, aircon and we had a great bathroom aswell with a real nice big shower. Also the bed was good (most in Greece are hard).
The staff is really hard working, friendly and they're really wiling to help you around with tips and advice about the city.

Although this hotel isn't right in the city centre its only takes 20 minutes to get in the main central area (5-10 minute walk to Metro (Victoria) and then another 10 minutes to get to most places).
The reception staff were extremely helpfully especially the guy that worked most afternoons/evenings. Room had everything we need but my only negative was that the shower attachment (over bath) couldn't be mounted high to wash hair easily, also no shower curtain meant the bathroom could get soaked. Also some nice restaurants within easy walking distance (recommended by reception staff).

Room Tip: We paid slightly more for a deluxe room which got us more space and an external balcony.

Very convenient hotel in Athens. Close to Victoria station in a quiet area it is a good spot for a couple of days. Breakfast is awesome and rooms are big and clean. The staff is nice. It close by to the exarcheia square which is very lively and not touristy. Stop for a drink and enjoy a genuine Greek atmosphere

Good design, good location near the Archeological Museum. We are really truly impressed by the staff, efficent, smart, friendly, tolerant. The room has a kitchinette, the street is calm. We passed a 3-days holiday with a great feeling of confidence. It is a perfect 3* hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Having read previous reviews I expected something better! Our room was indeed very loud at night but I expected that. However I was surprised that the room was not clean enough . Unfortunately first impressions count and I found toe nail cuttings (big and obvious) in my bath . The guys at reception were very friendly and actually moved us to another room after the toenail episode....but I just couldn't help but look more closely after that and find dustballs in corners,etc... it just wasn't clean enough. But considering we didn't have much option we stayed. The breakfast was more than adequate. The rate is definitely reasonable for Athens but there is nowhere to go for a last late night drink in the direct vicinity of the hotel. The Radisson roof terrace was "full" so we couldn't sit there and there really is nothing else outside. We ended up at a fast food coffee shop at the bus station at the end of the road...just to have somewhere to sit outside for a drink. A hotel in Plaka definitely would be preferable for location but no doubt would be more expensive. There are loads of buses pass near by and they seem to run very late. The reception should hand out the bus numbers to help folks get back from Syntagma,etc. since I think its prefeable to take the trolley bus rather than go on the metro to Victoria at night (particularly for a woman on her own).
I assume that the higher rooms have nicer balconies etc - don't know. We had a balcony but no chairs on it and quite honestly might as well have not had it. I doubt I would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: possibly higher rooms have nicer balconies?? don't take room on first 3 floors.

This is a great hotel. our double duluxe room was very clean and spacious with a lovely balcony. the guy at reception was very helpful and welcoming.
I had been worried about the location as some reviews said this was not a good area, however having been to athens this area looks like every other area in athens and it is just round the corner from the raddisson. From victoria metro it is easy to get to everywhere in athens, but my husband and i walked from the hotel to around the acropolis and it only took approx 30mins (we are fast walkers), walking back at night there was no issue with safety.
Breakfast at the hotel was limited, but nice to have something included with the roomol. overall great hotel!

The room was spacious the breakfast was good for the price paid. The shower however was a whole different story. We spent some time, wiping water off the tiles floor because it was dificult to keep the water inside. LOL it was funny though, no major issue with the hotel and it made the stay interesting. We would stay at the hotel again in a heartbeat. Thanks :)
